Format: Audio CD
This was Talking Heads' last LP and it's not their best, but it has some great moments, notably the blasting opening 'Blind' and the positively swoonsome 'Democratic Circus'. Horns and Latin guitars augment the four band members and Johnny Marr, Kirsty MacColl and several Pogues make guest appearances on an album which anticipates David Byrne's world musicy solo career. There are still some great pop tunes ('Mr Jones' and 'Totally Nude' stand out) and lyrically the album seems to veer between disgust at modern consumerist society and an idyllic vision of primitive life in nature. 'Nothing But Flowers' is a brilliant vision of a modern Westerner whose world reverts suddenly to an Eden-like state. 'If this is Paradise', he cries, 'I wish I had a lawnmower!' The issues are as apt today under George Bush Jnr as there were when the album was released under his father, and I would definitely recommend giving it a listen if you like your pop exotic and intellectually stimulating.

By The Guardian TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 20 Aug. 2013
Format: Audio CD
This is Talking Heads’ final album, the swan song of this highly innovative and mould-breaking band from the 1980s.

The music is an unorthodox blend of styles spiced with David Byrne’s lyrical quirkiness, best expressed in the number ‘Nothing but Flowers’ where in some post-apocalyptic future the singer laments the passing of the machine age and the air pollution of the past; now it’s ‘nothing but flowers’ and feels dull by comparison. ‘Totally Nude’ in contrast professes naturist sentiments and has a South Sea Islands flavour.

Musically TH were here at the top of their game and although not every song works brilliantly, the result is never less than interesting with multiple themes weaving clever patterns often over Latin base rhythms.

‘Naked’ however doesn’t feel like an album of distinctive character and concept; rather a catch-all of leftover songs, of bits and pieces. Whilst not TH’s greatest moment, the result is more than just OK and way better than most music churned out during this era. It was, in retrospect, a fine exit for this band after its time in the sun.

Chiming guitars, intricate percussion, a cavalcade of lush textures and exotic rhythmns galore. Lilting melodies and wry, playful lyrics all wrapped up in a crystalline production job.
Lighter and more colourful and expansive than Talking Heads' similarly excellent "Remain in Light" and "Stop Making Sense," this is a must for all fans of shiny, adventurous guitar pop.

I always loved this album and used to listen to it years ago so I was very pleased to find it on Amazon at such a low price. Funky, trendy and full of great beats and catchy rythems. Perfect!

Some great stuff I'd long forgotten. Relatively few songs regurgitated as advertisements or jingles, which is a bonus. My only complaint would be that buying and having delivered the physical CD was cheaper than downloading the MP3s, which is pure madness.

Quinessential Americana from Talking Heads. More mainstream than their other albums, with a bounce and lift their earlier roots didn't have. Sounds dated now but it was real fun back in the day.
